With House and Senate appropriators locked in conflict over whether and how steeply to cut federal funding for discretionary healthcare programs in the coming year, there’s no more important time to get informed about what’s at stake and how it might affect your organization.
At the National Council’s 8th Annual Hill Day, in partnership with Mental Health America and the U.S. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association, we’ll be giving you access to the nation’s top experts on mental health and addiction treatment funding. Join us for a panel on “Navigating the 2013 Appropriations Process” to find out:
- Will the massive cuts to federal spending, including Medicaid, that have been proposed over the last two years go through in 2013?
- What impact would they have on community providers?
- What important programs that are on the chopping block, and what insights can we glean from the current political context surrounding the budget?
Panelists include: Lisa Bernhardt, Senate Appropriations Committee; Richard Hamburg, Deputy Director, Trust for America’s Health; Julio Abreu, Senior Director of Public Policy & Advocacy, Mental Health America; and Jenny Gold, Reporter, Kaiser Health News.
